WARNING - STEAM Users Beware

#1 Posted by Rasgueado (794 posts) -

I just thought that I should let you know... if anyone is thinking of purchasing this game on STEAM... you may have a problem actually PLAYING the f*@king thing once you get it. A lot of people (myself included) are getting an "invalid CD-Key" error once they've installed the game. The only way to correct this error is to connect with a live chat EA support person and get them to activate it for you. 

I generally have been pretty favorable of EA's game titles for the past few years, but their authentication and on-line policy is still in the farking toilet.

Me and some of my friends bought this on the Steam Sale recently and the same issue is back, basically, Steam didn't have enough CD-Keys for the game and now it has to wait for EA/whoemver takes care of that to send new keys.

Also, the 'Ultimate' version doesn't include all the DLC, running the risk of being called 'entitled' and all that I think that's very misleading at the least.

You probably already tried this, but just in case:

Close Steam and try running it again as Admin. There were a few times I've gotten CD-Key errors and that fixed it.

EDIT: Whoops, just noticed the date on this thread's OP. Hopefully you have it working by now :P
